Illinois is a Midwestern state and home to some of the coldest and windiest winters in the US. Because of the cold and wintry weather, homeowners typically choose flooring options that are maintenance free and slip resistant. For a luxurious floor, natural stone with a matte finish is a good option because it is less slippery. On the other hand, carpet is slip resistant and warm underfoot during those cold, long winter months. The wet and windy climate requires a stable and durable floor such as hardwood.
Chicago may not house the oldest buildings in the US, but it is certainly home to some of the more unique. Featuring some of the most famous American architecture, Chicago is home to The Chicago Building and the Chicago Avenue Pumping Station. While the urban areas feature skyscrapers and famous architecture, rural areas are filled with simpler ranch style homes and Tudor cottages. Tudor style homes typically have dark hardwood interiors and stucco ceilings. There are also many Colonial style homes with brick exteriors and hardwood or natural stone interiors.
